Client: Jenny Harborne, IMAGO architects
Type of works: supplied neo Rooflight.
When Architect Jenny Harborne was looking for a modern skylight for an extension to this minimalist London property, she specified the neo Rooflight from the Rooflight Company. Privacy was a key element of the brief as the property is flanked at either side by homes overlooking the extension. With this in mind the glazing was upgraded to Optifloat Opal privacy glass.
Three neo steel (neo S12) rooflights were specified, two being motorised and one fixed. The motorised rooflights were fitted with rain sensors to ensure automatic closure during bad weather conditions.
Rooflight when closed has totally clear views uncluttered by opening mechanisms. All neo models are top-hinged with concealed motors or with a discreet handle at the cill should a manual option be desired. Oak or moisture resistant linings (for painting on-site). The neo Rooflight (steel) is available in Portrait, Landscape or Square format in 15 sizes and an optional glazing bar where a conservation appearance is more appropriate. For a limitless run of rooflights a choice of linking systems are available.
I am impressed with the clean lines and modern design of the neo Rooflight. It merges well with the standing seam roof at Quarrendon Street and compliments the minimal design perfectly. Jenny Harborne, IMAGO architects
